I'll have to investigate that option. I just have this bad feeling that its not possible to do both. Since all education is free in Denmark, the government imposes a lot of restrictions to make sure that the tax-payer's money goes to the right places. I have been here long enough such that my way of thinking has been "manipulated" - I hadn't even considered the option of doing both. Thanks!! If I can do both, then that'll really ease things for my game plan. 8-) Regards, -Kristian- 8-)
